  Case Study on Reforming School Discipline, Equity, and Justice: Oklahoma City Public Schools Profile

CDF and AASA, the School Superintendents Association, believe that all schools should be welcoming and productive places for children to learn and for teachers to teach. We believe that exclusionary discipline – suspending or expelling a student from school for a disciplinary reason – be used sparingly and as a last resort. Measures can and should be taken to build positive school climates, response to special circumstances of students, prevention student misbehavior, and address violations of school rules in a restorative manner.
